Mørkheim - Gravsang lyrics

En ravn med fjer saa sorte
som et forkullet træ
med øjne saa mørke
som havet ved nattetid
den ravn
fløj forbi mig inat
inat
en hvid mand paa marken
brød den sorte flade
han bar sten over heden
han bar sten over heden
en grav rejste han
med tunge skridt
over heden
inat
inat.

"Gravesong" (English translation):

A raven with feathers as black
as a charred tree
with eyes as dark
as the sea by night
that raven
flew by me tonight
tonight
a white man on the field
broke the black surface
he carried stones across the heathe
he carried stones across the heathe
he raised a grave
with heavy steps
across the heathe
tonight
tonight.
